1- Remove access to everyone exept your user name to access to your computer locally,
2- open gpedit.msc and in your local windows security settings, be sure to remove access to everyone using this policy: "access this computer from network". Just enable this policy, and put no one in. .

from winnetmag:

"Log on locally. The Log on locally right lets users log on directly to a computer. This right and the Access this computer from network right are probably the two rights that new NT administrators most often overlook. I recommend that you remove this right from all groups except Administrators on servers. Doing so ensures that even if unauthorized users gain physical access to your server, they won't be able to log on unless they know an administrator-level username and password. Unauthorized users will see the message The local policy of this system does not permit you to log on interactively. Restricting this right won't prevent users from connecting to the system over the network, and restricting the Access this computer from network right won't prevent users from logging on locally to a computer."

Additional "tiny" thing from the background: I do run webhosting from my pc.

1. I did "access this computer from network - to nobody"... and hopefully I will be able to open the pc after restart :-)

2. I will probably not do "Log on locally" restriction because I am running the pc from home.
